Evan Nolte, a junior forward for Virginia, was arrested for being drunk in public on Sunday morning in Charlottesville. Nolte was arrested outside a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop. No word on whether or not he was getting a sandwich. Cops tried to let Nolte go, but he had other ideas. Via NBC29:
A police report says Nolte admitted to having eight drinks, had slurred speech and, when put in a cab by police, ran out of it. He was then arrested.
Running from a taxi that cops put you in? That is a power move. The kind of move made by a man floral print Hawaiian shirt with multiple buttons undone. Nolte appeared in 32 games for the Cavaliers last season. He had a swell dunk in the NCAA tournament and the crowd went wild.
